Jade Eyes Scarlet EP
-An EP with Protable Notebook-
Biography

Created by a team of Yuan Ze University students majoring in Information Communication. Everyone has expertise in different areas, which allows us to stimulate one another and come up with plenty of ideas and have a good executive ability. Our team believes that creating a good design that not only visually compelling but functionally applicable always comes from a user’s experience.

Description

Our team cooperates with “JADE EYES” indie band. We designed and created a notebook with a black cover as the album case for their EP called “Scarlet.” Our idea is to make doing his or her assignment more pleasant and boredom-free. The user can use the computer to do his or her assignment while listening to the JADE EYES's music saved in the USB after he or she inserts the USB in the shape of a peacock feather into the computer. After the user finishes the assignment, he or she can save the file into the USB. The design aims to expand the user's sensory experience of the song and enrich the user’s imagination of the song when the EP package is created.
Communication Objective

The product is intended to cater to fans who love independent music. We create a notebook as the case for the band's EP based on our understanding of the fans' music-listening experience.
We create a notebook as the case for the EP. The cover of the case is black and the endpage is red as the title of the album is "Scarlet." When a user opens the cover of the notebook, he or she will find in the center the USB that contains the JADE EYES indie band's song. The USB is in the shape of a peacock feather, whose color varies according to the temperature. The notebook is divided into two sections. In the first half of the notebook are the lyrics of the song as well as a story that our team writes based on the content of the song for the user to enjoy. The second half contains blank sheets for the user to use freely. We replace a traditional CD with a USB as it can be used to save other files and a traditional CD case with a notebook. This makes the CD package more functional. Users can carry the notebook anywhere they want and play the music when they want to. While listening to the EP, the user will be immersed in this unique exeperience of visual, audio, and tactile stimulations.
